Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport reopened Friday morning after the storm spared that part of the state although multiple airlines that operate there including Air Canada, Caribbean, and Southwest had cancelled their Friday flights and would not resume operations until Saturday.

Miami International was open on Friday as well although several hundred flights were either delayed or cancelled.

The first plane into Palm Beach International Airport Friday was a Delta flight from Atlanta that arrived at 9:45 a.m., while the first departure was the airline’s return flight to Atlanta.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Matthew continues to cause devastating damage and storm surge flooding in Northeast Florida and continues to be a threat to much of the Carolinas and coastal Georgia
